This Central Saanich corn maze will be full of evil clowns and zombies this Halloween season


Calling fans of fear and all things spooky!

If you’re looking for an adventure this Halloween season, you can now immerse yourself into your very own horror movie. 

All those who dare are invited to lose themselves within Saanichton Corn Maze which, for the next two Saturdays of October, has been transformed into a Maze of Horror. 

The October 26th date has already sold out, and the 19th is expected to as well, so make sure you get tickets while supplies last.

This will be the debut event at this location which has been a family-run farm since 2010.

Their twisted interactive experience features evil clowns and zombies filling the 4-acre plot of land and they’re all ready to scare the pants off of even the most daring visitor.

“We have a mix of friends, family, volunteers, and paid staff. We even [hire] actors from a horror short film, ‘Attack of the Killer Scarecrow’, that was shot at our maze by a young local director, Octavian Kaul,” said owner and organizer Jag Dhariwal.

“I won’t give away all the costumes, but the maze will be filled with people you wouldn’t normally want to run into a cornfield at night.”

Come in costume or dress as yourself, but make sure to wear appropriate rain gear for possible muddy terrain caused by forecasted inclement weather.

Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult, and this event is not for anyone who suffers from cardiovascular health issues, is pregnant, or suffers from epilepsy that may be triggered by strobe lights. 

While this year, Saanichton Corn Maze is strictly for bravehearts, Dhariwal plans to introduce kid-friendly Halloween events starting next year.
